This tour was phenomenal — the scenery and challenging hike were amazing and we learned a lot about Oman and Omani culture. A very special thanks to our kind and knowledgeable hiking guide, Sayeed, who carried water and coffee for us and even shared dates from his own family garden during a break on the hike! With all that said, our driver and tour guide, Zack, helped make the tour special. Not only was Zack was incredibly helpful in answering questions before the tour, he also went out of his way to help make sure we were comfortable. When we’d mentioned that we liked Persian food, he took us to an excellent Persian restaurant after our hike. When he overheard that we liked Omani tea (karak), he stopped on the way to and from the hike without us even asking. And, along the way, he answered every question we would think of about Oman. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and kind. Thank you Zack!
